I just saw a job posting for a creative director role that listed sweeping, mopping the floors, dusting, vacuuming and polishing the studio furniture as responsibilities. I kid you not.

Though I’ve disclosed my epilepsy to a few in my firm, I don’t think it’s been recorded anywhere and I’ve always had a hard time telling people what should be done if I have a seizure that goes beyond, “please don’t call 911 unless it lasts more than 10 min.” As we go back to work, I will be sharing an office with another senior. I feel like it would be courteous to disclose the info to her in case something happens. Any tips, tricks, or specific advice? My seizures are ALWAYS grand mal.
60M people need to be vaccinated. Offering them $1000 each would cost this country $60B. Realistically, you can get to half of that population — $30B. One booster shot for 250M people at 80% uptake — $200B. For $30B - $230B, we can end the pandemic in the USA. Worth it? Edited: add in $5M for an MBB to do this math and put it in a PPT for you. And $50M for a big 4 firm to implement, botch, reimplement.
